About Dili

Dili C. Francis

Dili C. Francis

I am a friend, a neighbor, and an entrepreneur. My first company was Rognosis Inc. – a software and media development company, and Soyword organization was my first nonprofit effort focused on underprivileged children and social outcasts using a methodical approach to break the cycle of destitution one receiver at a time.

I wrote the logs on this site to muse aloud, and although a fan of intricate long reads, my goal here was to publish short articles that make deep connections [hopefully], not an intellectual or professional impression. The theme of my writing was personal and reflective: from business to life as an everyday person. Some entries are independent bits to a larger [perhaps more intimate] collage of meaning. Still, being a public journal, every article is open to a kindred spirit.

Born in Nigeria, I grew up amidst the sputtered variety of both its northern and southern cultures. I am the product of meaningful friends and role models to whom I owe all that I am today. I have an overwhelming fondness for humanity as a race. I love our species. We are a resourceful, resilient, and a largely magnanimous race. My admiration for humanity trickles to every individual I meet, even in mundane situations. Each person, no matter their station in life, captures very well the essence of the human experience I treasure and respect. Frankly, I see why our race remains the obsession of deities. As a people, even as a single person, we are infinite and profoundly priceless.

Being a learner at heart, I collect materials on just about any subject much as people collect coins, watches, etc. I especially like materials around business, history, and science. I’m not much of a sports fan but enjoy seeing some of the thrills of winter and extreme sports, or a good game of tennis. I appreciate art, culture, and music – piano dabbler. Most of all, however, I adore entrepreneurs, artists, and the problem solvers of our time. I love life and the people in it, and while I aim to lead a life that affects others positively, I hope to always define myself intrinsically – free from achievements and popular acceptance: good or bad. We’ll see.
